Text:Applications have opened for grants from the $12,000 proceeds of a Christmas charity auction. The money was raised at the annual Charitable Christmas Auction run last December by the Gay Auckland Business Association (GABA). The GABA Charitable Trust will soon meet to consider applications for funds from the Auckland GLBT community "for organisations and individuals with projects and proposals that require financial support," says GABA spokesperson Richard James. Last year a similar amount was dispersed to a variety of activities, including: the Auckland production of the gay-themed play "Unidentified Human Remains and The True Nature of Love; an upgrade of the phone system and promotional material for Auckland Gay and Lesbian Welfare Group; hire of facilities and purchase of books and toys for Rainbow Families; a new computer for the Auckland Pride Centre; a brochure reprint for Rainbow Youth; a contribution towards printing costs for the bi-monthly Body Positive newsletter; three sexual identity workshops run by ther Auckland Women's Centre; and photographer Fiona Clark received financial assistance for the touring of her Go Girl photographic exhibition. Application forms can be arranged by email: Applications to the Trust must be completed and returned by 31 March.
